The morning began with a stop at Pap's Bait and Tackle in Barnum. Pap informed me that Fish and Game had stocked the North Branch with Cut Throats and whopper Trout,
large enough to set state records. Unfortunately, the water was so high and cloudy, no one was catching anything.
Next stop, was the lower Savage. It was immediate fast action on my muddlers. I caught 2 Browns and 2 Rainbows each measuring in at about 14 inches.
Just a footnote on fishing gear. Felt soled studded waders are highly recommended. The rocks are slick, and wading can be treacherous.
Releasing a trout is like rewinding a videotape. You can play them over again. Please be kind, rewind. Keith Feeley (world's luckiest fisherman)
